Vans Park Series officially planted its flag in Shanghai, China, as the 2017 Vans Park Series World Championships crowned Oskar Rozenberg Hallberg and Nora Vasconcellos as the new world champions of park terrain skateboarding. This historic moment marks a first for the China skateboarding community, as the Vans Park Series brought the world’s elite park terrain skateboarders to the world-famous Bund waterfront in Shanghai for the greatest showcase of men’s and women’s park terrain skateboarding talent the world has ever seen.
Executing flawless example of true park terrain style, 2017 VPS world champion Oskar Rozenberg Hallberg produced an astonishing run that dominated every inch of the park with remarkable creativity and trick combinations.
